A few items I sell are kitchen utensils and a few breadboards. I've used a variety of finishes on these including "Salad bowl finish", olive oil, canola oil, and sometimes nothing. I recently was at a housewarming party for a friend and I was chatting with someone there that was a chemist and as we talked about our jobs, she was very interested in the finish I used on these kitchen items. When I told her that I used canola oil, she said that was a BAD idea since canola oil rots wood. I had never heard of this before but I belived her in that she may know something about the chemistry of it all. Does anyone know anything about this?
